Re: BVI budget

We will also be there for our second trip in March. What is stated above is true.

Flights are often cheaper to St. Thomas and then take the ferry across. This is a little more hassle though. Our round trip flight from Boston is about $1,200pp thru Jet Blue which provides direct service to and from St. Thomas.

Pack less than what you think you need. You will spend a lot of time in your swim suit. Buy food for breakfast, snacks and half your lunches. Also buy plenty of bottled water. You will likely eat out most nights. Buy a fall back lunch and dinner. Peanut butter/jelly and pasta just incase you want to eat on the boat. When eating out, stick to the local cuisine which is mostly chicken/fish, root veggies and plantains.

Bobbies and other markets have online provisioning and usually deliver right to your boat for you.

I highly recommend booking through Ed Hamiltons. They will find you the best deal and do a wonderful job coordinating your charter.
